Former Manchester United footballer Ryan Giggs has arrived at court after being charged with assaulting two women and controlling or coercive behaviour.
The Wales manager is accused of causing actual bodily harm to a woman in her 30s at his home in Worsley, Greater Manchester, on 1 November.
He has also been charged with the common assault of a woman in her 20s during the same alleged incident.
And Giggs, 47, faces an additional charge of engaging in coercive or controlling behaviour.
This is his first appearance at Manchester Magistrates’ Court after being charged on Friday.
On Friday, Giggs released a statement, saying he had "full respect for the due process of law and understand the seriousness of the allegations".
He added: "I will plead not guilty in court and look forward to clearing my name.
"I would like to wish Robert Page, the coaching staff, the players and the supporters every success at the Euros this summer."
